  1. I would say its safe to assume HARPER did not bother to send JTF2 to help rescue a Canadian citizen either when they were first abducted. Sad.
  2. I wouldn't go as harsh as that, but I totally saw the parallels between this one and A New Hope. First half is buildup, and second half is rushed story where they miraculously blow up the big weapon by fluke. They probably should not have bothered with the final scene and saved that for the next movie. Also some more backstory would be great. Like it took me a while to figure out the First Order are not a sanctioned government/army but are really just the equivalent of ISIS I guess.. or the new 'rebels'. But the original resistence is still a resistence? So who runs the republic and what kind of army do they have? And stormtroopers are still clones?.. though less inept now it seems.
  3. Because no one wants to help a bunch of lazy drug users who brought their troubles upon themselves for the most part. Get a job you bums! Move to another city if you can't afford Vancouver. No need for TFW's if a hobo gets off his butt and gets to work.
  4. I wouldn't be surprised if AA's real beef is with Edward Rogers, the Jays chairman. AA is a total Beeston guy, that with him gone, maybe AA felt he wouldn't be shielded from ownership anymore....and Shapiro will probably side with ownership everytime as he's brand new to the whole organization. Recall that Rogers went behind Beeston's back last year (or was it this offseason) to look for his replacement..called up Jerry Reinsdorf (whom they didn't know is Beeston's buddy) to inquire on a member of his staff. Well Reinsdorf goes and tells Beeston afterwards and asks if he's aware that he's being replaced behind his back like that. Bad joo joo there Rogers.
  5. Seen a game at: Skydome, Safeco, Kingdome, (old) Yankee Stadium, and of course Nat Bailey. Visited AT&T Park for a tour, and walked along the plaza of Angel Stadium. AT&T park was the best looking stadium I visited, especially being in the California sunshine. However I had the most fun attending games at Skydome (on Canada Day) and Safeco field whenever the Jays are in town, especially a few years ago when they played in Seattle on Canada Day. Honourable mention to Nat Bailey to being a good time too. I think a California baseball tour is in order next summer.
  6. So, can we expect a sales discount on VW or Audi cars in the near future? Could go for a new car next year. Or do you think they'll maintain sales prices and just load them up with more features?
  7. Not necessarily. Jagr himself said that if he had played in the NHL during those Europe years he may well be retired by now due to the toll on his body. The KHL plays less games I believe, with less overall grueling travel and probably inferior talent at the time he joined (or at least a focus towards skill than grinding and laying out a big hit).
  8. Like Sean Avery? edit - Mr. Ambien beat me to it.
  9. Wolfe Mazda is alright.. neither great nor terrible. They are kind of located out in the middle of nowhere on the Surrey/Langley border, so if you are bringing your car in for service you're stuck there. Or venture to the ABC restaurant next door.
  10. I remember YouTube being the only place to find the SNL digital short 'Lazy Sunday' online. I think that one clip helped them get so much recognition at the time. Google bought em to replace their own lame Google Video foray.
  11. How is this different than the throwback jersey's they wore this past season and i think the season before. Were those ones just the white road jersey's and now they have the home ones this season instead?
  12. Manny Malholtra... (asia is really big)
  13. Well, it is pre-mutation for both of them. Not sure about rocksteady but Beebop looks spot on in human form.
  14. If this is WHA part 2, I'm not sure I would support the new league. However If this was a new league formed by the actual Canadian teams separating out from the NHL, then I would definetely support it. You would have NHL caliber rinks, teams and management at the get go so there would be no minor league feel. You can even expand right way into Quebec City, maybe Hamilton and a second team in Toronto to get us to 10 teams. TV rights, as mentioned before would feasibly be scooped up by Bell/TSN, and hell even Rogers could bid too...why not broadcast both leagues..nothing stopping them. I also believe Rogers has an out in the 12 year contract too. Remember, Rogers bid billions because that's how much the NHL is worth to Canadian you can get a significant proportion of that for a Canadian only league. Sponsors: you're gonna get telecoms, Tim Hortons, banks (TD/RBC/BMO etc), Canadian Tire, SunLife, Air Canada, Westjet, and so on and so on. So don't worry about that. The issue would be all players contracts would immediatedly be void as they are NHL contracts. Now they may be able to redraft those players into the new league, and as players contracts expire in the NHL they would be free to sign up north. The first couple of years could be watered down, but eventually you will get a very high level amount of talent. On top of that, lots of Jr players to choose from, who would have the option now to sign with either the NHL or the new league right after they finish their jr career. Lastly, for the name, I would call it the Dominion Hockey League or something to that effect. Sounds very Canadian to me. This is purely an exercise in fantasy, but it's a fun exercise nonetheless.
  15. Where was all the outrage with Castor's wives being raped and dehumanized.. he even specifically called for the crows to 'bang em till they're dead' !
